Massage and relaxation

All forms of massage can aid relaxation by lowering the amount of circulating stress hormones such as cortisol and norpinephrine and can directly affect the systems that govern heart rate, blood pressure, respiration and digestion. The circulatory system is also stimulated so increasing blood supply which brings more oxygen and nutrients to tense and damaged muscles, aiding their recovery. This helps the Lymphatic System – the body’s drainage system – to remove toxins from the body, hence the Importance of drinking water after massage treatments to aid this process.

In our modern culture, most of us do not get touched enough, which in itself can soothe the body, mind and spirit If you are feeling low and tense then why not treat yourself to an hour of relaxation with a qualified Massage Therapist.
